Hammers Fans Not Happy About Big Sam!

Last updated : 21 May 2014 By Footy Mad - Editor

We all know about Mike Ashley sticking by his manager because he is delighted Pardew is the target of the supporters ... rather than him!

And West Ham have decided to stick with manager Sam Allardyce.

West Ham statement released by the club said: "After listening to feedback from supporters, the board have insisted on improvements to the set-up of the playing and backroom staff to ensure the team provides more entertainment next season."

Allardyce guided the club to promotion from the Championship at the first attempt in 2012 and secured a 10th-place finish in the team's first year back in the Premier League.

The Hammers failed to progress last season, however, and spent the majority of the campaign fighting off the threat of relegation.

Allardyce: "I look forward to taking the club forward and improving the squad for next season to try and achieve the plans we have set out in our very productive meeting last week."
